Cigar Federation and Cigar Dojo Throw Down - Our Third Community Release

DENVER, CO (MAY, 21 2015) – Cigar Dojo, Cigar Federation, and Viaje Cigars have come together for an unorthodox cigar project, the likes of which have never been seen in today’s cigar industry. Combining the skill sets of two of the industry’s leading cigar communities, as well as the unique and highly sought-after characteristics of Viaje Cigars, Cigar Dojo and Cigar Federation have pitted themselves against each other in the cigar face-off of the century - introducing Throw Down.

The epic battle officially begins May 21, 2015, with this press release and continues June 5th when the cigars go on sale. The concept is simple: each opponent has selected, in conjunction with Viaje Cigars, a unique cigar blend to represent their community. Purchasers of this unique project will then judge the outcome, receiving five cigars selected by Cigar Dojo and five cigars selected by Cigar Federation. Not only will consumers judge the victor, they’ll have a say in the outcome; voting for their favorite blend at the new dedicated site - (

Cigar blends have been developed from the ground-up by Andre Farkas, the mastermind behind Viaje Cigars. After creating a handful of premium blends to be contenders for the final product, the cigars were then sent to both opponents - Cigar Dojo & Cigar Federation. Each brand then selected their preferred blend to represent themselves in the final throw down battle.

Soft-packaged in bundles of 10 cigars, Throw Down will arrive with 5 cigars from each brand, using a 5.5” x 52 robusto vitola. Cigar Federation’s blend uses a San Andrés Mexican maduro wrapper over an undisclosed filler/binder blend. Cigar Dojo has chosen a Criollo 98-wrapped blend, using an undisclosed filler and binder. Coming in at $90 per 10-pack Throw Down cigars will be made available exclusively June 5th through the Cigar Federation online store -  To receive the early notification to order Throw Down Cigars before they go on sale to the General Public go to


“There is no doubt that the Dojo cigar will win this battle, after all… I am the Master Sensei.” stated Eric Guttormson, owner of Cigar Dojo. He continued, “I will let you in on a dirty little secret, both cigars are awesome and the real winner is the cigar smoker that buys a couple bundles of these.”


Logan Lawler, owner of Cigar Federation, stated – “While I am really excited about both blends, we knew instantly the blend we wanted to represent us for Throw Down and I have no doubt it will win the battle.”

HELL YEAH.... So glad to be apart of both communities

Comment by Jason Meyers on May 21, 2015 at 5:50pm

Question: some of us are planning to split a bundle of these. In that situation will it be possible for both people to vote or can only the person who purchased the bundle vote?

Comment by 302JH (Jose) on May 21, 2015 at 5:56pm

I will probably end up pulling a Logan, and end up saying... "Because of my relationship with both communities I will not vote on which cigar is better."

Comment by Charlie on May 21, 2015 at 6:07pm

Hey thats a good idea Jose....since I'm a fan of both sites I'll call it a draw ;-)

Pulling a Logan would be..."I have a favorite but its a secret"

Love both places so best tasting cigar gets the vote. I'll smoke both variations back to back on the same day...then I'll repeat the back to back smoking on day 2, except I'll switch which cigar I smoke 1st

Are we going to be able to pre-order these?
Comment by Stefan Lindblad on May 21, 2015 at 9:02pm
This is a great idea. Stoked to get these!

Lots of really good questions.

Jason - on a split you can still vote. We will ask for you to provide an order number so we can verify the votes and ensure people are double voting but splits are cool, assuming you vote for me :)

Man Angel - much like in the Presidential election, I will be voting for myself.

Miguel - sort of visit and you can sign up for the early sale. That email will go out some time on Friday 6/5.

I cut back on my stripper money this week just so I made sure I had enough for this release!
